Indian cuisine has an outburst of flavors ranging from mild to spicy. Spices are used extensively in Indian dishes which give them their distinctive flavor. Indian migrants were brought to South Africa as slaves in the 18th & 19th century.

The most popular Indian cuisine dishes in South Africa include Curries, Biryani, Samoosa’s, Bunny Chows & Chicken Tikka.

Bunny Chows were created by the Indian slaves as they did not have plates to eat their food. Indian slaves decided to make a deep hole in a loaf of bread & place their curries in them. This gave them the support to eat their meals with ease & hence the Bunny Chow was invented. This dish is by far the most popular Indian dish in South Africa.
